This is Mercato! Many names…but for sure Juventus will get at least Big Name in Attack!
TURIN, April 25, 2012 – Van Persie, a Juventus man: other rumors, other voices, other clues that now – got to number well over three – little more than a proof … Already last week, we picked up the rumor about the encounter between Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici and the agents of the Arsenal striker, Robin Van Persie. A meeting, documented, clearly still due as tentative: and that is useful to assess the feasibility of the operation, to launch important messages can witness real interest, to lay the foundations for a real negotiation. Well, now think in England (the Daily Mirror, in particular) to focus on a summit meeting between Juventus and managers of the player – as well as through with Arsenal – and a proposal of 25 million pounds (30 million euros) for the the player’s card.
THE SITUATION By now is well known, the Dutch champion – just elected Premier League Player of the Year – has a contract with the Gunners next to expire: the agreement is valid up to June 2013, after that deadline, the player will be officially freed. This implies, therefore, that during this period the club and staff player strive to think about a contract extension. Which, actually the coach / manager Arsene Wenger has started (tried …) to do, but without finding the desired results. Van Persie is in fact torn between the strong bond that has matured with the London club – where he is captain and he plays since 2004 – and the desire to make a change in his career, most notably to his palmares. In his wall, now, does not appear anything but a UEFA Cup (but won the Feyenoord), one Community Shield and FA Cup with Arsenal but back in 2004-2005. In short: Van Persie wants to win something important and begins to fear that with the Gunners it is not possible. That is why is hesitant to the renewal, so that Wenger admitted: “The player must decide at the end of the championship will have 3-4 days to choose what to do with his future.”
THE NEGOTIATION Juventus – even more if they presented with one championship and a Italian cup just won – could then leverage the ambitions of the player. Yet on his pride: in black and white Van Persie would be the symbol player, the man of image. What maybe at Real Madrid would not be: there would be one of the many … These are the arguments that – combined with a good economic proposal: 8 million per season – can use the Juventus management to try to beat the competition and put Van Persie at the disposal of Conte. The Dutchman is the first goal, hopes to catch him are not lacking.
